“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Breakfast menu needs more options. Needs amenities, including wifi, but customer service was very good. Customer service exceeded my expectations. Room price was a little high. Needs some improvement.

We loved our pre-cruise stay at the Best Western Plus Westbank! Cute hotel with lots of character, a nice hot breakfast, and wonderful staff. We really enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay here again if we are in New Orleans. They do offer cruise parking, as wll, but we had made other arrangements.

Room Tip: Lots of non-smoking rooms, but people did stand outside their rooms to smoke.

My coworker and I were traveling to N.O. for a 10 day business trip. Instead of staying in one of the more expensive hotels downtown, we found Best Western Plus in Westbank. It was clean, parking was FREE, there is a great restaurant next door, as well as 2 drug stores right next to the hotel. It is about 2 miles away from the freeway exit to get to downtown and on average would take us about 15 minutes to get to the convention center. The courtyard in the hotel is so pretty and calming with a pool, a fountain, and a hot tub. There is laundry service, but you can also do it yourself in the washer and dryers on the second floor. The staff was amazing! Not only were they extremely helpful with anything asked of them, the were so friendly. They absolutely went above and beyond what was expected of them! (Thanks Wayne, Brian, and Jordan!) I could not think of one reason not to stay here. If I ever travel back to New Orleans for Work or for Fun, I will definitely be staying at the Best Western in Westbank!

A busy weekend in the Big Easy and rooms in or near the French Quarter were 3-4 times as expensive as the BW Westbank. We had always stayed at BW on Rampart Street in N.O., but it was booked solid and was 3x as expensive. I was very impressed with BW Westbank in many ways. It is in a safe neighborhood, near quality restaurants, shopping and other amenities. Our drive into New Orleans took only 6 minutes - with access to major attractions (WW II Museum, French Quarter etc.) very easy to find. For price, convenience and safety - I would recommend this hotel.

This is a great place to stay when visiting New Orleans. Just 10 minutes across the river from downtown, parking is great and FREE. There are several fast food restaurants and a drug store nearby, and it has a great pool & whirlpool in the lush courtyard. The beds are firm but soft, with good pillows. All the rooms I have stayed in have had mini fridges, coffee makers, and great shower heads. I'm not a huge fan of the flatscreen on the wall, but it is stylish, and leaves more space for my stuff on the dresser top. The security is good, the elevators work, the free breakfast is good & well stocked. On the occasion I made an error in the online booking, hotel staff were pleasant and made the requested corrections. This hotel is a great bargain for your money.

As I grew up in Gretna, LA from the 70's thru the 90's, I had pasted by this Best Western thousands of times on LaPalco Blvd. And it never looked like much from the outside because all of the rooms face inward towards the beautiful courtyard-style area consisting of: pool, hot tub (inside of a gazebo), and courtyard bar (a mini house built inside this area). Not at all what I expected! The room is the typical 2 queen beds hotel room, with flat screen TV, refrig, microwave, etc. - nothing different there. The morning breakfast was the other surprise as they have actual eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, grits, pancake machine maker, etc - much better than other hotels breakfast that is just danish and coffee.

Room Tip: our 3rd floor room had a great view of the courtyard area
